Vastness of Mind

March 9- 18 A  silent retreat at Buddhist Insights, Rockaway Beach NY

“Being peace comes first. Doing peace is something that comes from that foundation.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Deep practice is the wellspring of peace, and the basis of peace is wisdom. In this retreat, we will be practicing shamatha/vipassana meditation as well as studying and reciting the Heart Sutra. The Full Awareness of Breathing Sutra and the Heart Sutra lay out the ground, path, and fruition of Mahayana Buddhist philosophy; with this sutra as the basis, we will explore the vastness of our minds – the peaceful, compassionate spaciousness that is our true nature.

July 21 “Contemplative Art”                                                                    9am-4pm Maine College of Art,  Portland                          

As artists, we constantly explore perception and
mental states to create. We rarely examine these states as a conscious choice. Many cultures celebrate the contemplative artist who creates from a mind of deep inner peace. This is the wellspring of all sacred and healing arts.  Join Khenmo Drolma for an exploration of working within meditative states. You will be given basic meditation and mindfulness instructions and simple exercises to learn how to locate and work from oceanic stillness.  This course is for all levels of experience, especially those tired of the myth of the tortured artist!
